Abstract

All the contributions to this book, whether they are theoretical or empirical, and whichever country or region they consider, emphasise the general failure of capitalism to solve agrarian and agricultural problems. e recent deterioration in the circumstances of peasant agriculture following the exacerbation of the food dimension of the current systemic crisis of capitalism has revealed and con rmed once again the permanent and structural inability of such a system to resolve the deep internal contradictions it has generated since its very origins, not only at the local, national and regional levels, but also worldwide.
